Report from Shy Torque with the Autumn Festival Winner

Rich, Nigel and Chris (Star Inn)
Hi all,


They say lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place. This year it did for one of  our regular anglers and good mate Nigel Hall !!

Nigel fished with us in this years Spring angling competition here at Whitby which he won with a very nice Pollack  of  12 lb 6 oz which  landed him a very nice £1050.00

He fished the September competition with us again which finished last Sunday and boated a cracking ling of 24 lb 3 oz on the first day. His fish stood at the top of the leader board right the way through to the end of the event and scooped him his second win of the year , another £1050.00 !!

Both his winning fish were caught on his home made bait rigs which he’d baited with a cocktail of mackerel and squid and both fish came off the same wreck !!!

A big congratulations to him.

I’d personally like to thank our sponsors for the competition, Mr Chips fish & chip shop,  The Star public house in Whitby, Hook Line & Sinker tackle shop of Whitby and Focus Training. Their continuing support is very much appreciated.

Also, we’d like to thank all the anglers who fished with the Shy-Torque in the last competition. Hopefully see you again next year.

Nigel is pictured with his 2 festival winning fish and collecting his prize money.

Cheers and tight lines as ever
